    :laugh:
    Wise guy

    Is that you calling me right now?

    If so call the house, you still got that number?

    Funny story with the pg I got from you. Last fall I couldn't get the thing to stop dripping from the nozzles. The guy at PG was very helpful, and I ended up replacing every inch of the spray system and the dam thing kept leaking.

    So finally Doug ( I think that's the name of the guy from PG ) says well the only other suggestion I got for fixing this problem is....Have you seen the new magnum?

    It cracked me up!

    But a few days later I bought one from my local Lesco.

    I see they are made close to me, Next week I plan on doing some riding so I will take the bike down and check them out.

    I will tell the guy I'm the official LS rep :laugh:

    We had a demo for a couple hours this past fall, The rep was very friendly and it seemed like a nice family owned company but overall my impression the overall machine felt very cheap and light, durability will be a big issue for this ride on, I always feel the less wiring and gadgets a ride on has the happier you will be, that's why the Magnum does so well, it may not be the greatest ride on in the world but they really learned thier lesson after all the headaches with the gadgets "Ultra" too much wires + fertilizer and weed controls = downtime.

    I agree. Wires = Problems.

    I hear all these nightmares about older Permagreens with the electric pumps, etc...
